Tasker foursquare checkin task

So I was trying to incorporate the new v parameter necessary for a foursquare checking using Tasker. Using https://kristianfreeman.com/automatic-checkins-with-tasker/ I was able to initially get it working but at some point it quit working. Adding the additional parameter with an ampersand was not working. Turns out that the proper format of the data/file field is this:

venueId=%par1

oauth_token=YOUR_TOKEN_HERE

v=20131202

 

Note: a good way to see the actual response you get back from foursquare is to simulate a post with:

 

<html xmlns=”http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml”>
<head><title>Test Post with FourSquareAPI</title>
<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form id=”TestForm” action=”https://api.foursquare.com/v2/checkins/add” method=”post”>
vennueId: <input type=”Text” name=”venueId”<br/>
oauth_token: <input type=”Text” name=”oauth_token”<br/>
v:<input type=”Text” name=”v”<br/><br/>
<input type=”submit” value=”post” />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Zynga support forum registration fail

Amazingly, one of the most popular games around, has no ability to login without a facebook account because their captcha registration interface is broken.

Several tweets to support have yielded no satisfaction as of yet.

The latest suggestion as for me to use a different browser…

My words with friends account is: Haloway1313In short the problem I am experiencing with words with friends is that there must be some issue with my account, specifically a corrupt game in progress may be corrupt or some other issue. Regardless of the device that I use to access my account (rooted nook, android phone cyanogenmod 9, stock rom, etc) it crashes everytime. If I re-install the game and register a new account, everything works fine. Can create a new game with no crashes. When I then associate the installation with my original account, the crashes start happening again.Please fix it!

Firefox 19.01 yields:ff

Run the executable, choose the appropriate printer, printer receives the update and then after about 5 mins the update is done.

Voilà!
